The Last Ten Books Tag

I do so few book tags lately so here’s one I recently got tagged in by dini @ dinipandareads. She has the best blog graphics and amazing bookish content so please go check her out. The original tag was created by booktuber Marc Nash (thanks Dini for finding out that info!).

Let’s get started!

THE LAST BOOK I GAVE UP ON:

The whole parent trap situation was not for me and I couldn’t stand all the CAPS being used by one character.


THE LAST BOOK I REREAD:

I always reread this once a year because I miss Reykin 😭 and the third book in the series was just not good – even though I had rated it 5 stars at first read – it was mostly because Reykin and Roselle finally got together. But looking back at how crazy the story was- (sigh) it’s more like a 2.5 star read (5 stars for Reykin though haha). 😢


THE LAST BOOK I BOUGHT:

I bought this as an ebook. I’ve been on a hardcover book buying ban all year since I went crazy buying books during 2020 when we were in lockdown.


THE LAST BOOK I WROTE IN THE MARGINS OF:

And this was YEARS ago…I never write in margins. 🤷🏻‍♀️


THE LAST BOOK I HAD SIGNED:

It was for my daughter lol…and Kristi Yamaguchi there at the event so why not? Do any of you know who she is or am I showing my age? She’s an olympic gold medal figure skater and hey…figure skating was so huge back in the 80’s and 90’s, I was such a big fan. And hello she looks amazing, like she hasn’t aged!


THE LAST BOOK I LOST:

I have no answer for this! I really don’t remember the last book I lost.


THE LAST BOOK I HAD TO REPLACE:

I think it’s kind of crazy how low the reviews are of this book in Goodreads lol – I read this back in 1991 when I was 12 and young adult books weren’t what they are now. Goodreads was not around lol. I was obsessed with this series so much that the cover finally fell off and I had to get the combined copies just for nostalgia sake – this was the book that made me obsessed with vampires. And it did kick off the show The Vampire Diaries so…Damon and Stefan was born in this series. Sure it doesn’t stand up next to young adult books today but wow this was made 30 years ago. YIKES, I’m old. I also had to replace The Secret Circle series by the same author – honestly all her series could be tv shows. I think they tried with The Secret Circle but the show didn’t last? But Dark Visions and The Forbidden Game also? Teenage me was obsessed with this author!


THE LAST BOOK I ARGUED OVER:

I don’t argue much with anyone – except with my hubby! So very unpopular opinion – and I don’t know why but Harry Potter did nothing for me. And I reread this book twice, first when I was in my twenties, second time in my forties and it still didn’t do anything for me. I did read it the second time because my hubby told me to read it again. I think if I was in grade school reading this it might have interested me? I don’t know.


THE LAST BOOK I PRE-ORDERED:

But I will be preordering Steelstriker by Marie Lu because that cover belongs on my shelf and The Hawthorne Legacy by. Jennifer Lynn Barnes because I need to know what happens.


And that’s it! Who am I tagging?

Charlotte @ The Fantastical World of Book Reading

Sheri Dye @ Read Betwixt Words

Lee @ Callie’s Tales

Reading At Teatime

and YOU! No pressure to do the tag at all. It’s just for fun! ☺️

  1. Great answers, Yolanda! I have heard some pretty cringe things about both of Christine Riccio’s books and even though the covers always catch my eye, I’m kinda glad I decided that I won’t be reading her books any time soon 😅 Also, super cool that you got Kristi Yamaguchi to sign that book for your daughter! I probs would’ve bought the book just to have her sign it if I knew she was there! LOL
